Sinful treats to tempt you

I'm still busy settling down at my new office so this would be a short post (loaded with pics) on some sinful treats to tempt you.

Last week I finally made my way to Haagen Dazs, thanks to Watson's buy 1 free 1 voucher. No regrets though the selection of ice creams are all extremely overpriced. The texture of the ice creams are ultra smooth and comforting, definitely the best I have tasted so far.

We had 1 scoop of chocolate cookies and another scoop of my fave green tea, topped with almonds and hot chocolate fudge...yumyum...the combination was so perfect that I'm craving for it now. This heavenly great dessert came with the price of RM19.90.
Another complimentary scoop of summer berries, free!
Char siew bao still digging his ice cream cup...
So sad....
Btw, they were having buy 1 free 1 coffee promotion. 2 cups of coffee for char siew bao at 9.45pm 0_o No worries, he still slept like a pig.

Latte and Americano (RM9.90)
I had fun taking pics of the desserts from their menu too...haha
You just can't go wrong with their ice creams!

team BSG said...

Their ice creams and others are visually appealing and extra fine so deserve top marks ( only problem is the price ). otherwise we can eat whole day !

Xiu Long Bao said...

precious pea: ooiyor, another green tea ice cream fan! I luv the slightly bitter taste and the super smooth texture...yumzzz!

Char Siew Bao said...

You know guys,
Although Hagen Daaz is reknown for its premium ice-cream, being so delicious...
and i really thoroughly enjoyed it...

I'd still settle for the ice cream man around my ex-skool, on his motorbike, ringing his bell...
Selling ice cream with cone, 50 cents per scoop, RM1 for double.
Whats more you can have ice cream sandwiches too!

YUMMY!

hahaha expensive "ais kleng"....Ii tried the fondue...hm...like u said costly and it wasnt all that great to me : P

Have u tried New Zealand Natural? They taste just as good to me...
I tried Choc ectasy and macedamia...their green tea so so lar (big fan of green tea stuff and japanese black sesame pdt)

Xiu Long Bao said...

csb:
Okay, u settle for dat ding dong man ice cream, i'll have haagen dazs.

jian:
the fondue really not worth the price? cus it looks soooo tempting! I tried NZ natural before, not that often. Yar, their green tea ice cream not dat good. Guai lou not so good in dealing with green tea i supposed...haha

Jian said...

lolz...i was all excited also at first until i got the chance to try it...maybe its bcuz of the flavour of the mini ice cream balls. kenot choose wan... the fruits came in small slices...lolz..then i only remember they gave chipsmore and sum other low cost biscuit : P oh yeah RM59.90 belum plus tax lar...

in short takda "wah" factor >.<

maybe fondue in KL is better in quality...lolz...i have an impression that any eating outlet in KL come over to Penang will drop quality....eg Kim Gary : P

can make ur own fondue wat...RM70 can get a lot of stuff to go with d melted choc including more hagen icecream...lolz

Its just my oppinion...try lar if kenot resist...the fondue looks pretty rite?

maybe can ask nigel to include choc fondue in his new outlet...lolz then can have durian balls dipped with choc sauce! kakaka

Xiu Long Bao said...

jian:
True. Maybe i can try to melt some chocolate and get 1 tub of green tea ice cream to dip in it! Yum Yum! and maybe fresh D24 Durians, inspired by Nigel. Haha!
In btw, I miss those Penang hawker food... they are the best!

Jian said...

KL food also good lar...some...lolz
